Couples going abroad can register marriage online

Thiruvananthapuram: The government has decided to provide relief to those who could not register their marriage directly with the local bodies as they had to go abroad after marriage.

Such couples will now be able to register marriages online without reaching the office of Registrar in person. The decision was taken in the wake of the ongoing covid pandemic.However, officials should also be convinced that the couples are in a situation where they are unable to appear directly before the Registrar to legalize their marriage.
